Valerie Jarrett – Obama Says Consults Her Before Every Significant Decision
The role of Valerie Jarrett has prompted much speculation. She has a mouthful of a title — senior adviser and assistant to the president for intergovernmental affairs and public engagement — that “doesn’t begin to do justice to her unrivaled status in the White House.” Valerie Jarrett apparently has a role in most major decisions: she often appears in meetings the president has with major political leaders from Capitol Hill and with foreign leaders as well. She often stays behind to have private discussions with the president. Obama admitted that he ran every decision by her.
